USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is making available to the public its new web-based Self-Reporting Tool (SRT) that it will send to foreign countries to report information on their food regulatory systems for the purpose of establishing that the systems are, or continue to be, equivalent to that of the United States' system. FSIS is also responding to the comments it received on its document review process for determining and verifying equivalence of foreign food regulatory systems in countries that export meat, poultry or processed egg products to the U.S. FSIS evaluates the information provided in the SRT and uses it, along with the results of on-site systems audits and port-of-entry re-inspections, to make a determination on equivalence.
